Seismic behaviour of buildings founded on thermal insulation layer

David Koren, Martina Zbašnik-Senegačnik, Vojko Kilar

Abstract

Thermal insulation under the building foundation plate or under the strip foundations prevents the thermal bridge on the contact between the building and supporting terrain and reduces the energy consumption in modern passive and low energy houses. In the paper the seismic behaviour of buildings with different heights, floor plan dimensions, on different soil conditions and on different thermal insulation layers have been analysed. The results of simplified seismic analyses have shown, that the potentially negative influences of inserting the insulation under the foundation plate could be expected only for buildings with more than two or three storeys.
